The DJI Phantom UAS (UAV) Battery Flight Timer is your personal flight assistant, keeping you up to date while you concentrate on flying your expensive hardware.
Audio and vibrate alerts you at various times, these can be toggled in options. Vibrate is useful if you're wearing a headset (like fat sharks) or the Android device is in your pocket; the vibrate will shake the same amount of times as the current minute remaning, from the 5 minute mark (5 minutes = 5 shakes, 2 minutes = 2 shakes etc). This feature allows you to know how many minutes remain without being able to see the screen or hear the voice.
Different batteries may require different times. Different payloads (gimbals, landing gear etc) will also affect flight times as will the weather so please be aware of this. A dose of common sense should be applied and your fair weather time adjusted to suit. Three save slots have been included for three batteries, or use them for one battery but different conditions or configurations.
Quick Start Guide:
Set the timer up by flying in normal conditions and timing with a stopwatch to see how long each battery lasts. Now slide the bar to that time and press 'Battery 1 - Save' to store your first battery. In future you will need to start UAS Timer and load the saved battery. Repeat for another two batteries or configurations if required.
The UAV Battery Flight Timer will alert you at half time (if flying out for distance you now know when to turn back), 15mins, 10mins, 5mins, 4mins, 3mins, 2mins, 1min and 30 seconds. It will then sound an alarm on completion.
Ideal for the DJI Phantom quadcopter owners out there where you have limited ways of monitoring battery levels, yet might be flying FPV with an expensive GoPro and gimbal.
Great for all UAVs, including:
